About this project

#SAVECINDYSSIGN

Hi! We're Monique King and Paul Rosenbluh. You may know us from our first restaurant, Firefly. We've been making delicious chicken dinners and amazing brunch and breakfast classics with a twist for the last 15 years.

We've always had a passion for old-school aesthetics with new-school flavors and we're sharing that passion with the Eagle Rock community through our newest project - the restoration of Cindy's Diner!

We've worked hard to maintain the integrity of Cindy's, a mid-century modern landmark in the tight-knit community of Eagle Rock, CA. We've kept the original booths, wallpaper, counter tops and spirit of Cindy's intact - but there are still some major renovations needed to fully restore this architectural gem. 

The sign at Cindy's is more than just a whimsical reminder of the golden era of diners. It's a community landmark that (along with the restaurant) has been a part of Colorado Blvd.'s history since 1948. 

During the many years Cindy's was shut down, the sign fell into serious disrepair. If we don't act now, together, an important piece of Los Angeles history will soon be gone. 

Here's what you're backing:

  • Conservation of the sign's salvageable parts 
  • Restoration of the rusted metal
  • A new neon "OPEN" sign
  • Structural reinforcement of the sign
  • Construction of replacement parts/letters/etc.

The Kickstarter community is known for it's commitment to fulfilling artistic dreams and funding missions that both beautify and make our world a more interesting place. 

Join us now on our mission: to help save the sign at Cindy's Eagle Rock Restaurant and revitalize a Route 66 landmark!

When you decide to back our mission, you'll not only be treated to the satisfaction of helping restore an architectural treasure, but you'll also receive some AWESOME rewards!

Most of the rewards above will be available to anyone who pledges! But we also have several ULTRA LIMITED EDITION rewards... so be sure to get them before we run out! (And if we DO run out, keep checking back -- we'll do our best to add more when we can!)

 And if you're an organization, business or group of people - check out our ONE-OF-A-KIND Ultimate Party Package!

Risks and challenges

If we raise our minimum funding goal, we do not anticipate ANY significant challenges or risks in completing the project.

As with all Kickstarter projects, there is always a risk of delay in delivering some of the rewards, but we've been careful to give ourselves MORE time than we think we'll need – so we hope we'll have some, or all, of the rewards out SOONER than listed.
